Snoopy Astronaut Doll with Original Box

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+

Description

Appealing "Snoopy Astronaut" doll with scarf, 'Snoopy' cap, and portable ventilation unit, standing approximately 9.25″ in height, complete with the original Determined Productions box. The doll is in fine condition; the box is very good, with scattered creasing, wear, and a few tears to the flaps (one reinforced inside with tape). The connection between the Apollo program and the Peanuts comic strip is well documented. The call signs for the Apollo 10 spacecraft were the names of characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, the semi-official mascots of the famed 'dress rehearsal' Apollo mission, and Peanuts creator Charles Schulz also drew some mission-related artwork for NASA.
